Specialties

Dr. Carol S Portlock has the following 2 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

She needs to retire, and MSK knows it

Absolute waste of time to see her and it wasn't easy getting an out-of-network authorization to see her. I wish she paid more attention to my case than being concerned about bumping into the cabinetry. Incredibly disorganized and unprepared. Arrogant. Steely bedside manner. ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. If she's any example, I see that MSK has not changed much. Retire Dr. Portlock, like your peers and superiors are trying to get you to do! Whoever called her a witch on a broomstick was right!

Dr.Carol Portlock needs to retire

Knowledge is good but bedside manner is lacking. This dr must fly home on her broomstick going home. I believe she was good years ago but time she retired for the good of the medical profession .

My Rock Star

Her demeanor from the outset was calming. Her solutions evidenced she knew what she was talking about. I'm here 2 1/2 years later and I attribute much of that to her skill and compassion as a physician .
